Water and the pumps to get it!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty

Water Elowe-224x300Next to oxygen there is no resource more precious on this planet than water.

When I opened the New York Times today I was absolutely astonished to see plans for a new desalination plant in China.
“BEIJING — A coastal desalination plant planned for east of Beijing could provide a large portion of the drinking water for the parched Chinese capital by 2019, the state news media quoted officials as saying on Tuesday.

Water treatment and purification!

safe waterWater, water everywhere and nary a drop to drink!  Yup, you guessed it, this week on The Prepared Canadian we take a look at water treatment.  As a compliment to my presentation at the Ontario provincial prepper meetup in Huntsville this weekend, I thought I would give those who can’t be there a chance to hear about water treatment.  Possible contaminants are as easy as A B C D, and we’ll look at what treatment method works for each kind of contaminant, including radiological.
To top it all off, I have yet another fresh editorial this week, so don’t miss out!

Home emergency kit, safe storage, and more!

Canada 125Canning 1219121745bIt’s back to basics time again on The Prepared Canadian! From time to time, a surge of new Preppers in the forum prompts me to get back to the basics of prepping. Now is another one of those times. This week, we will take a look at putting together a very basic home emergency kit. I’ll explain some of the options available to the beginner for water & food storage, as well as the basics of keeping up to date with news, keeping warm, and having light and cooking ability. Of course, more experienced Preppers should listen in also, as many will have all but forgotten about their emergency kit and what’s in it. If your new to prepping, or have been prepping for years, there is something in this show for everyone.
Also, I give a shout out about the upcoming Ontario Provincial Meet, and will also talk about a couple of projects I am working on, such as a dipole CB antenna and a 12VDC generator built from an old lawnmower and a car alternator.
